JS100 trem saddle HELP !

I was fitting new pickups to a friends JS100, when fitting new strings, the high E saddle snapped !!
I only gave the clamp screw half a turn !!
Cheap alloy I reckon !?

Anyway, I did some research and ordered part No. 2EL2-C2C which is a chrome saddle for the Edge 2, (with the red clip underneath) but the bar at the tail of the saddle (which sits under the fine tuning screw) is too big !
It's the same length as the saddle that came out, but is too wide for the cavity !

Am I missing a trick in installing this?

I thought the JS100's only had the TRS before the Edge 2 ?, so was fairly confident when ordering the part !
It's NOT a TRS trem on this guitar.
Do I need another part for a different trem JS100's had ?

Help please guys

Re: JS100 trem saddle HELP !

Id guess you have an edge pro saddle not an edge pro 2 saddle.

edit: looking at pictures, it looks like the edge pros have wider tails then the pro 2's do.

The TRS died in 02', replaced with the EP2 in 03', replaced again by the ED3.

My guess is you're not installing it between the spring plate and the fine tuner.
